Did Jesus Christ Really Say That

If you've finished reading this booklet, you've probably been surprised, maybe even shocked, to discover some of the things Jesus

Christ really said and what the Bible says about Him. But there's much more that's rarely taught or discussed in most churches—and when it is, it often doesn't square with what Jesus Himself said!

You need to discover what the Bible says for yourself. And don't take our word for it—look it up in the pages of your own Bible!

This booklet has touched on many subjects that are vitally important to understanding Christ's teachings and God's purpose for humanity and for you. We've put together many other booklets that discuss these crucial topics in much greater detail. All are yours free for the asking when you contact one of our offices or visit our Web site at www.ucg.org. As always, there is never any cost or obligation, and no one will call on you.

• To discover the incredible biblical truth of what the Bible reveals about God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, request Who Is God?

• To learn more about the awesome purpose of human life as revealed in the Scriptures, be sure to call or write for your free copy of What Is Your Destiny?

• Why are there so many churches, each proclaiming a different set of doctrines? How can you find the true Church Jesus promised to build? Request The Church Jesus Built to discover the answers.

• For more information about repentance and conversion—and how you can fulfill Jesus Christ's purpose for you—request your free copy of Transforming Your Life: The Process of Conversion.

• To understand which day is the biblical Sabbath—the day set aside in the Bible for regular weekly rest and worship services—write or call for your free copy of Sunset to Sunset: God's Sabbath Rest. You'll also learn why God wants His people to assemble together and why this most neglected of the Ten Commandments is so important to our relationship with Jesus Christ and God the Father.

• To learn more about the biblical festivals Jesus kept, request your free copy of God's Holy Day Plan: The Promise of Hope for All Mankind.

• What is the true gospel Jesus Christ taught and commanded His Church to proclaim to the world? Is it possible that most of Christianity accepts and teaches a different gospel from the one Jesus Christ taught? Request your free copy of The Gospel of the Kingdom to discover the answers.

• The foundation of right human behavior is found in the Ten Commandments. But why are they so important? Do they have a deeper meaning that most people miss? Be sure to call or write for your free copy of The Ten Commandments.

• The popular holidays of Christmas and Easter cannot be found in the Bible. What are their origins? Where did their trappings, such as decorated trees, Santa Claus, rabbits and colored eggs, originate? Be sure to request Holidays or Holy Days: Does It Matter Which Days We Keep? to learn the surprising answers!
